Asquorth is a name whose history is connected to the ancient Anglo-Saxon tribes of Britain. The name is derived from when the Asquorth family once lived in North Yorkshire, where they took their name from the village of Askwith. The place-name is derived from the Old English word askvior, which means dweller near the ash wood.

Asquorth Early Origins



The surname Asquorth was first found in Yorkshire, where they had been settled from ancient times, long before the Norman Conquest of 1066.

Asquorth Spelling Variations



Sound was what guided spelling in the essentially pre-literate Middle Ages, so one person's name was often recorded under several variations during a single lifetime. Also, before the advent of the printing press and the first dictionaries, the English language was not standardized. Therefore, spelling variations were common, even among the names of the most literate people. Known variations of the Asquorth family name include Asquith, Askwith and others.

The Great Migration



For political, religious, and economic reasons, thousands of English families boarded ships for Ireland, Canada, the America colonies, and many of smaller tropical colonies in the hope of finding better lives abroad. Although the passage on the cramped, dank ships caused many to arrive in the New World diseased and starving, those families that survived the trip often went on to make valuable contributions to those new societies to which they arrived. Early immigrants bearing the Asquorth surname or a spelling variation of the name include: Charles, Jacob, Robert, Samuel, and William Asquith, who arrived in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania between 1858 and 1875.
